If you check behind every door, you will always be able to find some reason that you should not pass through. Sometimes you just have to kick in doors and move forward. Sometimes you will upset someone…it will happen. But fear of irking someone is not sufficient reason for timidity or passivity.
Making a mistake or overstepping one’s bounds is no reason for timidity or passivity either.
Nor is it time for anger.
It’s time for earnest humility.
You usually need to work with others to move things forward anyway.
